Sounds of battle interrupt a calm morning walk in the woods for Ljotr and Argi, two young villagers far removed from the complex world around them. Always one to charge headfirst into danger, though, Ljotr rushed to see how she could help. Her quick actions saved the life of a man, but she was not quick enough to save his partner. Whispers of his mission against the corrupting Mists, a dark and malevolent force that Ljotr lost her mother to as a child, hit her ears. She had no plans to get wrapped up in the fight against the Mists again, but the stranger’s mission soon becomes her own.
